Boxing heavyweights Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are ready for a WBC title clash...but is Las Vegas!? Wilder vs Fury 2 is set to be one of the richest fights in history, but will the box office bust-up between the Bronze Bomber and the Gypsy King live up to the hype? Here's how to watch a Wilder vs Fury 2 live stream to find out.
More than a year on from their first encounter, 6ft 7in American Wilder and 6ft 9in Brit Fury are set to do battle over 12 rounds at the MGM Grand. Both fighters will be hoping to take home the belt and set up a mouth-watering unification showdown with Britain's Anthony Joshua.
When Fury met Wilder back in 2018, the transatlantic war was on. A huge right hand from Wilder floored Fury, only for the 6ft 9 Gypsy King to scrape himself off the canvas and force a draw.
Tonight's rematch is talked about as one of the biggest fights of the century, with Fury warning that he will "pop Wilder like a balloon".
The Morecombe-based fan favourite, who has battled his mental health since beating Vladimir Klitschko in 2015, has a 29-0-1 record with an impressive 20 knockouts. Meanwhile, 34-year-old Wilder enjoys a 42-0-1 record, including 40 KOs.
Even former heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis has weighed in on the action. He expects Fury to throw bombs from the first bell: "You have to remember, he rose in the 12th round after being knocked down and attacked Deontay," Lewis told BBC 5 Live.
Wilder isn't exactly a shrinking violet, though. The Bronze Bomber said: "It's an adrenaline rush in the ring, we're all brave warriors, we're all gladiators and that's what we become in order to fight and give you guys the best show of your lives."
Ready for the return of pay-per-view boxing's glory days? Here's how to live stream Wilder v Fury 2, wherever you are in the world...
Watch Wilder vs Fury 2 live stream for free
Fight fans in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil and Canada get the chance to watch Wilder vs Fury 2 for free. DAZN has the rights to show the fight and a whole host of sports in these territories, and, best of all, DAZN offers a 1-month free trial. So long as you've not used yours already, then you can fill your boots.
Sadly the DAZN free trial isn't available to those outside these regions. If you are a DAZN customer but travelling abroad, you'll need to sign up to a VPN service to make sure you can access the DAZN Wilder vs Fury 2 live stream wherever you are.
Watch Wilder v Fury 2 live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you've paid to watch Wilder v Fury 2, trying to access streams from outside your territory – if you're on holiday or working abroad, for example – is a problem. These services know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block you – even if you're a national of one of these countries.
So, you’ll need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to help you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
VPNs are as useful for banking as they are at trying to watch video content or access websites that people in your location are not supposed to do. So, whether you want to watch live football, enjoy another country’s Netflix library or just keep your browsing data private, then they’re well worth considering.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service and would recommend the following:
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. And don't forget about Express's 30-day no quibble money back guarantee if you just want to give the service a try.
Which comes in at as little as £2.29 per month and features 24/7 assistance
Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the fight.
When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
